Make 1 – 10 July the best days of 2016!

The Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival is right around the corner, and with a jam-packed line-up of events across 10 days, it’s the place you want to be this winter break.

We’ve provided some tips to ensure you get maximum enjoyment out of your time with us:

  • This year we’ve made giving back easier than ever, with the Pick n Pay Fundracer charity portal, which essentially makes lending your support completely effortless! All you have to do is register as a FundRacer and share your profile via email or social media with your friends and supporters. All donations go via a direct payment gateway which ensures that 100% of donations go to the account of the nominated charity. For more info, visit: http://www.pnpoysterfestivalfundracers.co.za/
  • Don’t miss out on the all-new Seafood Wednesday, set to take place 6 July. The event kicks off with a seafood walk-around at participating restaurants during the day, followed by the SASSI Fish Braai competition and Oyster Shucking and Eating competition in the evening.
    The Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival Flavours of Knysna served with TABASCO® Sauce will also form part of Seafood Wednesday. Here visitors can see some of the best restaurants in Knysna and surrounds compete for a number of sought-after titles.
  • Look out for Oyster Hotspots in and around Knysna where restaurants will serve oyster specials and get your fill of what this little town famous!
  • For sport fanatics, the Momentum Health OatWell DualX, powered by PeptoPro will be at the Festival for the first time this year and offers the best of both – trail running and mountain biking!
